Discoverer Reports – Out with the old, in with the new!

Discoverer reports are still used by a good number of Oracle E-Business suite companies, mainly because finding a fast, effective, affordable replacement has been a challenge. Even though Oracle has ended support for Discoverer, many companies are willing to take the risk, betting that Discoverer will continue to function. But what if you have critical production or close reports that your team relies on? Enter a new tool, Blitz Report. This tool can import and execute your discover reports. The free tool can be used for up to 30 reports, for unlimited users, in unlimited environments. Our presentation includes a live demonstration of how to create new reports, as well as import both Discoverer reports and BI Publisher reports.
This presentation will explore the opportunity to modernize your EBS reporting, including:
• Engage users to understand & participate in the agile development process
• Demonstrate how to import and execute both Discoverer and BI Publisher reports
• Provide insight on how to manage report libraries to avoid duplication and stale report buildup
• Show how a single tool can be used successfully by Functional, Development and DBA teams

Modernize EBS with Oracle Enterprise Command Centers - For Free

Southern Company Services implemented the Oracle Enterprise Command Centers for Southern LINC in their Oracle EBS 12.2.4 instance. In this presentation we will discuss the business challenges Southern LINC was facing ahead of ECC being installed, as well as the business needs met by the Enterprise Command Centers (Payables, Receivables, Assets, Inventory and Order Management). We will discuss the installation and implementation of ECC with a timeline, the benefits observed post implementation, the lessons learned during the project and lastly our ECC road-map going forward.

Some of the key challenges that were faced during the implementation and the lessons learnt will be discussed next. Invesco has been live on EPBCS for close to a year. So speakers will round off the discussion with discussing what is it like operating in the cloud
